Fun bit of info, re: missing nukes.

There's an American atom bomb lost somewhere in Northern B.C. and another one had to be self-destructed over the Saint Laurence river because the plane carrying it was going down.

Watch Dr. Strangelove and realize that... it is only -just- satire and not a documentary.

I saw the waterfall thing at Kinder Downfall, years ago. There was about three times as much water actually going down the fall as was going in at the top or coming out at the bottom - most of it was being recycled. It certainly was windy, and not far off freezing.
